I seem to remember from my Sylva days that Mini Van Tanks are 2" ID flexi pipe.

Provided the tank's only had air in it for years, you could weld the filler pipe on.  Worked for me.

Thought about welding it on Bob but I would not get the tank in without removing the subframe, so will look for a bit of hose.

Excellent point Martin - I did indeed have to drop the subframe (but, fortunately, not remove it entirely) to change the tank.  OTOH if the hose is at all accessible, it rather seems to defeat the object of a locking cap.

Thought of lifting the blankets off of Florence hibernating in the garage but ice on the car windscreen this morning means its still too dam cold to work in garage extension with a single skin plastic corrugated roof (might invest in some of that insulated stuff they use on conservatories this year) so no further progress. Was looking at a recon A series engine but a good one is nearly a grand so I'll do up the one we have.

4 1/2 hours in the garage tonight Florence now on her side again (a bit heavier this time) and moved to the back of the garage to make room for a new scamp, Mark Lassiter's heavily modified mk2, Florence will have to wait a bit longer.
